Poorly designed case, the fit looks like something that would come from China.

by

I own 5 other Saddleback pieces, computer bags, overnight bags, Ipad 1 case. And I love them all and there isn't another product on the market even close to the quality or fit and finish! But my new 9.7" Ipad pro case is the worst case I have ever seen!! Part of the screen is covered by the leather therefore I can't use the back button, the power button is hidden and almost impossible to use and a real pain to get to, the power cord receptacle is very difficult to get to as well!! Saddleback had a perfect design with the ipad 1 case! Why they screwed it up like this is beyond me!! I guess I will be forced to find something else.

 

Third iPad Case - Not In Love

by

Completely agree with other reviewer. I own 3 other Saddleback iPad Cases, the original iPad Case being my favorite. There is not another product on the market even close to the leather quality, but my new 9.7" iPad Pro case is the worst case of them all. Part of the screen is covered by the leather therefore I can't use the back button, the power button is hidden and almost impossible to use and a real pain to get to, the power cord receptacle is very difficult to get to as well. I get that the iPad Air was thin and light, but we don't care about thin and light for our quality leather products. Bring back the original fully protected, made a lot of sense, iPad Case that feels like something special. This iPad Pro Case (starting with the iPad Air Case) seems like it's made form pieces of leftover leather from the cutting room. Saddleback had a perfect design with the iPad #1 Case. Why they screwed it up like this is beyond us. Returns suck, so this will be my case for now, but I won't be jumping in for the next one if the design is not wholly improved.

 

Little too large for my IPad.

by

I bought this but returned it because it did not fit it to size. They added the loops to put in your pen. Which is great but then the top part overlaps and the entire case makes my iPad 9.7 look large. I also don't want the two straps because it gets in the way sometimes but that is just a personal preference. Other than that I would have kept it. One last thing It does not automatically shut off when you close it. So you have to reach in to turn it off. I really wanted to keep this because I love SB. Hoping they will make it fit to size. If they revise it I will try again. Noticed the larger Pro does not have the 3 loops? Think I would have preferred that just to keep my iPad smaller.

 

Go Pro 9.7" iPad

by

Awful. Agree with 1st 2 reviews. Just thrown together and out to market. It's case for iPad 3 was great. Got loads of compliments. Even had someone at a coffee shop order one after they saw mine. This one however is just awful. No feel. No depth. Like made from a kit. Everything is wrong about it. Oh well, sure like my other "older tobacco" bags from saddleback. I just sent back a large water bag and front pocket messenger. The new tobacco color and finish has no impression. Just another, well, I can get this tobacco color anywhere tobacco color.

 

iPad cases are phenomenal

by

I also have the iPad Pro 12.9 case, absolutely best case and design out there. You won't be disappointed with either of these. Get compliments all time when traveling and they always want to know where to purchase!

 

Nice Pro 9.7 case!

by

I purchased a Pro 9.7 case from a used group and actually really like it. The leather does not cover the screen on mine, per the other reviews. I find the power button and cable connector easy to get to. While this case will not work with the Apple keyboard, it is perfect for someone who uses the Apple Pen and ipad Pro 9.7. I really like it.

 

Good job saddleback.

by

I just received my iPad pro 9.7case, dark coffee brown the moment I opened the shipping box I loved it the quality and craptmentship is top notch I'm thinking about buying the black one keep up the good work saddleback.

 

Love My New Case

by

I have other Saddleback products, including the iPad 2 case. When I upgraded, I naturally wanted another.



My assessment:



Pros:



- Size is nice. slimmer & fits briefcase better



- Screen FULLY visible, all speakers/controls are open



- Leather beautiful



- Dropped after putting it in the case. The case got a mark but iPad unharmed



- Pen holder makes nice feet. If I add that accessory, I'm set



Cons:



- Liked the pigskin lining more, but I have to believe Saddleback was losing money on it...it was TOO nice for $100. Rather have the natural lining and not have to pay a lot more



- 2 things harder to access - charger port is recessed because the end of the case is "blocked" and the power switch is harder to get to







All-in-all, I love the case. Wife hit a home run with a gift that will get lots of use. I highly recommending it.

Perfect Case For The Newer Model IPad Pro

by

Perfect In Every Way!







I purchased this case a couple of weeks ago and I couldn't be more happy with the quality of workmanship. I have the newer model IPad Pro and this case fits like a glove. All features on the IPad are visible and functional and easy to access. I can only assume that the people complaining about the fit probably have the older version IPad Pro.



There's a slot for my Apple keyboard and Apple Pencil. Everything fits nice and snug. This is a well thought out design, the only thing they could've done better would be to have hand delivered it to me personally.







Excellent job!

 

Buy extra Pencils :-) Regardless, the case is superior in all regards except the pencil holder.

by

I'm a huge fan of SBL products and have used them for years. I recently purchased the iPad pro case with the pencil holder. I have no issue with the case overall, however, I have lost 2 pencils. Once the leather loosens up the pencils slip out. The pencils are $99 each. Could have bought to other cases for the amount of the pens. Not fun. The product needs to be honed in a bit. Perhaps some sort of elastic or velcro might do the trick.

 

IPAD PRO LEATHER CASE 9.7

by

Great product as always!!! very nice!!! I Pad fits great.

 

Awesome case! Better than anyone else!!

by

I received my iPad Pro case this morning in chestnut. Amazing!! The quality and feel is top notch and as good of leather craftsmanship as I have seen. It's very stylish and I look forward to using it for a long time. One observation - be sure you know what device you have!! I have an iPad Pro 10.5 and the case is for the 9.7 ... A little craft work on my part (and slowly working the leather) and the 9.7 case is 98% functional for the 10.5 iPad. Well worth the effort so I can use it on my 10.5!! Great job on the case!!!!
